Think about your past. What images come to mind? Who do you remember? Rob Davis showcases memories from his childhood in 1970s Hampton Roads in Robert Davis: Home, on view in The Box. The exhibition features images of familiar settings from the artist’s life in Norfolk, including the home he lived in with other young artists and the Ocean View Amusement Park where he spent time as a child. Beyond depictions of Davis’s hometown, there are also images of influences from throughout his life, including skillful drawings of sports celebrities Jerry Smith and Julius “Dr. J” Erving, pop culture icons Evel Knievel and Vivienne Westwood, and artists Norman Rockwell and Barbara Hepworth.
